This lovingly maintained, ‘Move in ready’ bungalow has had many updates over the past 10 years including the main 4 piece bathroom, appliances, roof shingles. The entire home has been freshly painted top to bottom in a fresh neutral color, awaiting your 2019 decorating ideas. When the markets are suppressed and it is difficult to find buyers, you need to make your property look the best it can. My team and I decorated this 1961 bungalow to show off it’s unique character. Having a house look like a beautiful home inspires buyers and gives them a great idea of what they could do after they purchase your property.
46 Years of Living
Recently a lady from Vancouver contacted me via my website to assist with the preparation and sale of her family home in Calgary. Her Mom was now in a Seniors facility and there was no one here to help her. Together with my team of extraordinary professionals we put an action plan together then carefully emptied her home of 46 years of belongings, cleaned, painted and prepared it for sale. I watched the market and analyzed the best way to create a fast and profitable sale. The end result was so rewarding….16 offers in 24 hours with a final sale price 10 % over list price!
The 4 P’s – Price, preparation, presentation and promotion – at work!
“This home was on the market for a year prior to my listing it. The sellers took my advice and staged it along with a couple of other unique marketing ideas and we successfully sold it within 2 weeks.”
Dated Bungalow Transformed!
“This dated and cluttered bungalow was transformed with paint, flooring and original artwork. Liz selected the colors and flooring, rented a storage unit for the clients and also rented original artwork for the walls. This spectacular transformation took several weeks, but paid off by selling the house in just one day for full price!”
Empty Room Now Warm and Inviting
“The Arriva Condo is Calgary’s tallest residential building. This suite has amazing views of the downtown business district and the mountains, but was simply white and sterile. We re-sanded and painted the walls a warm creamy yellow with a hint of soft green to compliment the hardwood floors and give the area some much needed warmth. The client had many pieces of furniture and pictures from an older project that we placed to create a smooth, even flow through the unit. The overall feeling and first impression upon completion was substantially better than when we began and will definitely help to resell this condo quickly and at a great price.”
Here is what the client’s had to say…
“Good morning Liz. Cal and I just got back from the Arriva. Wow it looks fantastic–we love the colors! You were so right about the quality of workmanship Jeremy and Levi do. I have never seen such excellence in a paint job–how cool is that?! Your boys are so nice Liz; we really enjoyed working with them and will recommend them to everyone. On that note, I should have asked Jeremy for a couple of business cards to hand out to folks. I would also like to leave one in the suite when we sell it in case the new folks want some changes done. Can you get a couple of his cards for me? Looking forward to seeing you again when we meet up at the Arriva in the near year.”
Estate Home Update
This gracious master suite has all of the luxuries you would come to expect in a beautiful estate home, however it was dated. The home owners agreed to replace the dark carpeting with more up-to-date colour and style of carpet as well as move existing furniture and accessories into their suite to show it at its best. The Master Retreat has become a cozy getaway by simply exchanging and rearranging existing furniture and accessories. A family learning and craft area was ideal in the home setting, however for purposes of selling this beautiful home the area is now set up as a quiet retreat off of the busy great room.
Lakeview Home Staging
“Lakeview is a desireable area of Calgary that boasts upper-end homes which usually sell very quickly. An experienced Realtor® knew that his listing in that area showed poorly and would only get offers from investors in the shape it was in… even in Calgary’s hot sellers market.
He asked me to come in and do a consultation with the seller. We totally repainted the main level in very warm colors which accented the existing furniture and draperies beautifully. We then hired a professional team of cleaners to make this tired house sparkle. Finally, we accented with the sellers existing items, moved furnishings and hung a new valance and modern rod in the kitchen.”
With a cost of about $3,000 to the client, this home sold for $40,000 more than the initial estimated market value!
